They should be made to pay up by the government or so. If you do something like not paying a fine to the court it gets
a hefty interest or they just take it from your income.
NOT COOL INTEL...
That is a bit laughable.
Any company, ANY company, will try to delay such a big payment with appeals and any legal way possible, for as long as possible.
This has nothing to do with them being intel. A company need to pay a 10,000$ fine will delay its payment as much as they can, even if they are making 10000000000000000$ a day.
This is corporate practice to its fullest. This is how almost every company acts regardless of size and payment.
You must not like apple for they have never really admitted about their exploiting batteries and poor work ethics.
You must not like samsung for "copying" apple.
You must not like AMD for promising us that bulldozer will be a great CPU and... we all know how that ended.
You must not like Nvidia for not giving away AMD all of their source code for gameworks.
You must not like microsoft for their extremely shabby windows 10 upgrades.
You must not like asus, gigabyte, xfx, evga, etc etc for selling their AIB cards for extra money.
You must not like the cloths you are wearing because most likely they were made by children in the far east.
You must not like your glasses because they are being made by almost exclusively by one huge monopoly which controls over 90% of the glasses market.
I guess there is not a single company in the world you like right?
etc etc etc etc etc.
Its time to wake up.
BTW, 1.2B$ is so not pocket money for them. Their profit for 2015 was 14b$ and they gave 4.4B$ in dividends. So 10% less income, means paying investors and share holders a hell of a lot less money (almost 27% less), which is a huge deal for intel. This is not spare change. Stop making stuff up.
